Describe your experience with Advanced Fertility Associates.
It’s a small clinic with Dr Ratcliffe. I highly recommend it as she changed our protocol and helped us achieve our pregnancy on the first cycle, after 8 failed ivfs elsewhere. She knows what she is doing, and the office is also great. They also have different pharmacies they can use for meds, so that the costs are better with those options.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr Ratcliffe’s office is well-verses in the ups and downs of fertility treatment. There were times that I was sure that my treatment failed, but they were really good in providing information on what could happen without giving me the sense of doom of a worst-case scenario that I often got with other doctors’ offices.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
There are two primary nurse coordinators, Natasha and Ashley. They are great.
How was your experience with Jennifer Ratcliffe?
We are very happy with our experience with Dr.Ratcliffe - she is a knowledgeable Reproductive Specialist who got us pregnant on our first iui. Before her, we had eight IVFs with clomid or natural cycle with doctors in Europe and in SoCal and 3 miscarriages. She changed our treatment, as the clomid seems to work against you at a certain age (another doctor also confirmed it). She changed our protocol, and we were successful - I’m now 14 weeks along. She is extremely precise, although you will find out that it’s a small office and very busy. We are so grateful we found Dr Ratcliffe.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Ratcliffe?
She is very honest and direct.
